Behind each name on the score-card there is more than a cricketer: there is a person. This is very much the story of the man behind the player: it the personal history of a fast-bowler-“Tyhpoon” Tyson. How does it feel to bowl fast ? What makes a fast-bowler tick ?. These questions and more Tyson seeks to answer and, in doing so, he traces his own career from the first stirring of the urge to bowl fast, through humour and dissapointment, to the peak of his career in the dramatic tour of Australia in 1954-55.
